The NC Dinos, who are continuing a fierce ranking battle, were hit with the bad news of the main beast’s injury and departure.
On the 7th, the NC club said, “As a result of a detailed examination today, Seo Ho-cheol received a finding that he needed 3 weeks of rehabilitation treatment due to ligament damage in his left little finger. The player is scheduled to join the rehabilitation group from the 8th.”
Seo Ho-cheol started in a home game against Kiwoom Heroes held at Changwon NC Park on the 5th, and was replaced after complaining of pain after his left hand hit the base during the base run at the end of the 3rd inning.스포츠토토
I hoped it wasn’t a big injury, but unfortunately, it became difficult to see Seo Ho-cheol stepping on the first team ground in August. While he was making his way to NC’s starting third baseman this season, he was hindered by an injury.
Seo Ho-cheol appeared in 77 games this season and recorded a batting average of 0.301 (82 hits in 272 bats), 2 homers, 30 RBIs, 4 stolen bases, and an OPS of 0.742. In the 2019 rookie draft, after wearing an NC uniform with the 87th overall in the 2nd 9th round, he was showing his potential in the 5th year of joining.
NC currently ranks 4th with 48 wins, 43 losses and 1 draw, and is ranked 3rd alone, ahead of KT Wiz (49 wins, 44 losses, 2 draws) without a ride. They are being chased by the 5th placed Doosan Bears by 1 game and 6th placed KIA Tigers by 2 games, so the battle for ranking in August is very important to advance to the postseason.
NC has no choice but to suffer from difficulties in managing the field field ahead of the 6th place in the metropolitan area, which will clash with SSG Landers in Incheon on the 8th and 10th of this week and KT in Suwon on the 11th and 13th.
